Wes Anderson’s probably my favorite director if anyone knows of any movies in his sort of style post ‘em up I’d appreciate it :) @wryjester, In Bruges is a good one alright :)
@superperfundo, Backdraft is my favorite movie from my childhood
My favorite current movie would have to be the last waltz, but thats more of a concert
the Lincoln lawyer is the best movie I have seen recently, also the rainmaker, a john grisham book, is one of my all time favs
Across the Universe is a new suggestion, I downloaded it a couple days ago. Whats funny is I also downloaded wonderlust, a movie about a commune, the day before I stumbled upon this site, and jordan’s plan to change the world.
Love anything Lynch or Kubrick– esp The Shining and Wild At Heart!
My current favorites include some badass Korean films like 달콤한 인생 A BITTERSWEET LIFE, an awesome and subtle gangster film and also Park Chanwook’s ‘Vengeance’ trilogy *thumbs up*
check out my profile if you want to see which are my favorites; but the most recent awesome movie that i saw was “The incredible shrinking man” it`s about a guy who starts shrinking, eventually reaching the size of a thumb and gets stuck in his basement and in an attempt to get some food he starts an epic battle with a tarantula (while he is still in his basement) and after he kills it he reaches satori, which is ultimate enlightenment. The movie ends with a beautiful monologue in which he recognizes his interconnectedness with the cosmos.
@superperfundo, It is a bit long, divided into two parts. It is on Netflix if you have that.
@napathy, Im reading into the wild right now! That man was a different dude to say the least, and that is why I love it! ~ Might be a little too enthusiastic with those two exclamation points, haha, but really though, it is a good book.
There are much more my favorite movies but i could write some of them which come to my mind: Inception, Memento, Forrest Gump, 3 Idiots, Slumdog Millonaire, Se7en, Before Sunrise(1995), Before Sunset(2004), (soon, so is Before Midnight(2013) when it comes to my country), The Truman Show, Benjamin Button, Leon The Professional, Back To The Future 1-2-3, The Shawshank Redemption, Like Stars On Earth
It’s hard to say, which are my favorite, but these three are the ones I can watch again and again, and again and have probably seen each of them more than 10 times.
*Amelie (Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain). I don’t know if this has ever really ”hit” America but it sure should. Some of the ebst soundtracks ever aswell.
@superperfundo, it’s really hard to explain. The movie is a surreal trip which lets you reflect your whole life. The style is so unique, I can’t even find words to describe it. Just watch Mindgame, you won’t regret it. I recommend everyone on this site with an open mindset to see this movie :)
